The aim of Optimus IEMGD is to fix some bug of IEMGD on Windows >7 releases and get the maximum performance in newer OSs.
The proof of concept is described down but essentially with this software solution you will takes the advantages of microsoft basic driver and IEMGD
How it works:
1)Run Optimus IEMGD
2)Change Windows Option to make icon always in try icon
3)Select a function from tray icon: Using Software\Hardware you will enable or disable IEMGD
4)Run quickly OpenGL 3.3 or 1.1
5)Change your CPU Multipler
6)Set Optimus IEMGD Autorun, Run\Disable\Enable Intel Services
How to install it:
. B)Click on Install Button (optional: mark Enable Windows AutoRun)NOTE:
-Software Function: Enable this feature when you need to surf on internet, write documents or other things that doesn't require the use of your GPU
-Hardware Function:Enable this feature when you need to play HD video in your video player and play some game that doesn't work with software rendering
-Before buy check that your notebook supports your max display resolution with Microsoft Basic Video Driver
-CPU Multipler function requires Intel SpeedStep enabled from your system bios (usually all z5xx Atom have this function enabled by default)
Optimus IEMGD isn't a freeware because, after 2years of free solutions, i've recived only 2donations. -This is a little bit frustrating expecially after all people that contacted me for assistance.
Anyway i will not sell this program for became rich but only to sensitize people about donating.
The program price is 1€ (a coffee) but if you want can donate more simply clicking on Paypal Icon in this blog.
Buying this program you will:
1)Get a licence with free updates
How to buy it:
1)Click on Paypal icon in my blog
2)Make a donation min1€ or more
3)Send an email with your paypal id
4)Wait for private download link
The program will be available only for paying users from end November 2014
Proof of the concept:
Actually IEMGD bugs in Windows 8:
-Reduced HW rendering vs Windows 7
-No Hardware OpenGL
How we can try to resolve these problems, maintaining the "720p" support in video players?
The solution is real simple.I took it from NVIDIA Optimus project (i know it's not the same thing but the aim it's similar).
There is a driver that:
-Runs apps without glitches in startup
-Doesn't have any problem with restarting function
-Have a better 2D rendering (software)
-Doesn't have OpenGL hardware rendering
This driver is called "Microsoft Basic Display Driver"
Mixing these features in "Optimus IEMGD" concept we will get on win 8\8.1\10:
-720p Video support in video players -> Hardware Decoding
-480p Adobe Flash support (15FPS Windowed Youtube Videos) ->Hardware Decoding
-Video Streaming support (usually less than 480p) ->Better with Hardware Decoding
-360p HTML5 support ->Software Decoding
-Normal Apps Startup -> Software Decoding
-Smooth Windows GUI for the best user experience ->Software Decoding
-Software OpenGL 1.1 and 3.3 ->Software Decoding
NOTE. Experience with 1366x768 display (better performance with lower resolutions)
Limit of Optimus IEMGD:
-Lower performance in Windows 8\8.1\10 vs IEMGD on Windows 7 (better than normal IEMGD on Win 8)
-No OpenGL Hardware accelerated...only software!
-Requires Display Driver Refresh when an videoplayer requires HW acceleration
-Requires that your video bios supports your display max resolution*
-OpenGL Changer is in the first release only compatible with IEMGD actived
Anyway you can apply this solution also for free (not so quick):
*Note: verify that your video bios has your display resolution. (Asus 1101HA doesn't have 1366x768 and need fixed bios: look here)
2)Disable Intel Video Card from device manager (will be loaded Microsoft Basic Driver)
3)When you need HW decoding restore the driver
